Overview

This 1996/1997 edition updates and expands upon its best-selling predecessors. For the first time, reports are presented on APA-accredited counseling psychology programs in addition to clinical psychology programs. Original research on over 230 of these programs provides valuable information on admissions criteria, application odds, research areas, specialty clinics, financial assistance, and more. The Insider's Guide demystifies the application process and offers clear direction that will increase your chances of being accepted at the school of your choice. Concrete advice, a detailed time line, and helpful worksheets take you through the treacherous journey of applying to doctoral programs. Improve Your Chances - Applying to clinical and counseling psychology doctoral programs is highly competitive: On average, only 1 in 10 students is accepted to a given program. This strategic, step-by-step guide will help you maximize the chances of becoming that one! Get The Inside Edge - The Insider's Guide uses information provided directly by the programs that is not available from any other source. It outlines what you need to know about the accredited doctoral programs in the United States and Canada. The literature on the psychology admissions process, rarely seen by students, is integrated throughout the 7 chapters and 27 tables and figures. A Step-by-Step Guide - This invaluable work will tell you how to begin a planned course of action a full year before you actually apply, and then take you through each of the critical steps in a patient and encouraging manner. Make Your Application Stand Out The Insider's Guide is authored by three clinical psychologists who learned by the painful "trial and error" method of applying. They offer you the benefits of their hindsight and experience in advising hundreds of applicants.

Covers graduate school selection criteria/assessing school criteria/financial aid/incl. descriptions of programs, etc.
